There has been a lot of important news for Alex Meyer since my last update.
First, Meyer has pitched in three games:
Another marginal start for Meyer. He wasn’t able to finish the 4th...

Ouch is right. Poor guy. I'm kind of surprised that elbow and shoulder MRIs aren't part of the standard pre-draft medicals.

Assuming this is only temporary until Plouffe or Nunez come off the DL (or until Santana is deemed healthy), what impact will this have on his service time calculations going forward?

This was my speculation two weeks ago:
Depending on how much you buy into the 120-pitch 'test' that Trevor May underwent as part of his development, it is possible that Meyer underwent a...
Catching up on the recent Alex Meyer starts...
Another rough start for Meyer. He only pitched two innings and gave up 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks and only 1 strikeout. He was pulled after 55...
The strange thing about his current pitch limit is that he didn't have one in late April. He had three consecutive starts in late-April to early-May where his pitch counts were 100, 100 and 92. This...
Quick update on the latest two Meyer starts from the past week.
Last Monday, Meyer had another so-so start. In this start against the Gwinnett Braves, he pitched only 5 innings. The first 4...
I like Marshall and Reetz, and in general I think some more position players with upside would be good.
Adams off the board. :(
Sounds like Seattle has already announced that Jackson will be moving to the outfield right away.
I agree. BPA in draft. However, I do think it is prudent for them to target bats by other avenues this year. If they end up trading veterans (Willingham, Suzuki, Correia), I hope they target position...
My quick, back-of-the-envelope calculations makes it seem like the Twins would need to save $1.4 million from their later picks in order to not lose their #1 pick next year.
MN Total Pool: $7.52M...
With the (most likely purely posturing) rumors that Jackson, Aiken and Rodon are all slipping because they are demanding top-2 money, would anyone spend the $6 Million to sign one if they dropped to...
It has been a dedicated 2 year effort, but that's what happens when you prioritize pitching for an extended period of time. Here are the young-ish pitchers they have acquired since the 2012 draft (in...
I'm not sure why this is misleading. I was trying to point out that a player can be very valuable at 3B without having the standard 3B offensive profile - the 25+ HR, .800+ OPS in the...
Gordon's bat doesn't necessarily have to profile at 3B in order for him to be valuable at 3B. Here are three batting lines that don't fit the standard 3B profile (two from last year, one from Twins...
Before things get too crazy this week, I want to thank everyone for contributing to an awesome thread. It has been a great ride, with lots of smart, intense, yet civil discussion about...
I would definitely trade Duensing; I might trade Fien. I would also argue that both are better than the player the Pirates gave up.
Is this anything less than a cost-cutting move from the Marlins?...
I looked back at how other top HS pitchers performed at low-A the year after they were drafted.
Stewart's K rate is currently at 18.1%. Since 2007, there have been only 3 HS pitchers (out of 20)...

I have seen some scouts give him a future power grade of 55 to go with 50 hit. That would project him hitting .260-.280 with 15-20 HRs and lots of doubles. If he walks enough, his OPS is between...
There has been some buzz that teams are talking themselves out of Kolek. My guess is that he is the one that would be available.
All the top players have ghosts from past drafts that haunt them.
Rodon --> Andrew Miller
Aiken --> Tyler Matzek
Kolek --> Colt Griffin
Gordon --> Tim Beckham
Jackson --> Josh Vitters
Two starts to catch up on.
Meyer pitched into the 6th inning. He gave up only 1 run, 6 hits, struck out 5 and issued only 2 walks. This was the first game he had issued less that 3 walks...
This is a really important point. Last year Stephen Drew, Yunel Escobar, Didi Gregorius and Zack Cozart all had roughly the same batting average (.253, .256, .252, .254). However, their wRC+ were...
